Raining colours!

"Life is like a rainbow. You need both the sun and the rain to make colours appear."
The best companion for rains is surely an Umbrella. And what better way to spend a Sunday than painting an umbrella itself! A workshop organized by Achyut Palav school of calligraphy for all enthusiastic and interested people in painting and calligraphy on Umbrella painting. Colours and umbrella provided by them, we only needed to carry our free mind and brushes to get started! Inspiring and motivating coordinators and Achyut Palav sir himself guided all those who had attended the workshop. Only instruction given to us was just go crazy and paint your imagination on the umbrella. While we were busy with our painting a rainbow in the sky just peeked down on us! Great experience..I thoroughly enjoyed the session and looking forward to many more such events with the same team. Three cheers for the entire team!!!

Peek into some really cool umbrellas...
